The next step was to put the new crossmember in place. The winch mount and the rest of the bumper’s tubing will bolt to this crossmember. To level the crossmember, I used a jack stand on one side and a factory bottle jack to fine-tune the other side. Since the vehicle wasn’t on perfectly level ground, it didn’t make sense to use a level on the crossmember. Instead, measurements were taken to ensure the crossmember was centered horizontally on the frame and was centered vertically on the front spacers.
